The Enchanted Bathroom Video


Sandy Warner finds more than she bargained for in the Three Lillies bathroom. Overcome by the moans and groans from the couple in the next stall, she begins to fantasize a hunk obeying her every wish.

Richard Leere didn’t expect to find the woman of his dreams flustered in his restaurant. After a surprise grab to his groin, he smiles.

Sandy, unsure if the man before her is real or her imaginary hunk, steps back. After an embarressing moment, she now must decide if she should make a move while the smile is plastered on his face, or apologize and walk out with her dignity.

Sandy, unsure if the man before her is real or her imaginary hunk, steps back. After an embarrassing moment, she now must decide if she should make a move while the smile is plastered on his face, or apologize and walk out with her dignity.

Excerpt:

Having finished the pukes and cussing I took out my handy mouthwash and rinsed several times at the mirror and sink area. The door opened and I heard footsteps approaching. When I looked up I had to take a double take...


“Miss, are you all right? I heard...well...someone being sick and just wanted to make sure no one needed my help.”


I stared at him from the mirror. My hunk! My imaginary hunk stood behind me. In a daze I turned around and grabbed his crotch.


“Hey!” He stepped back.


I must have turned all shades of red because I felt the embarrassed heat flaring my cheeks and neck.

“I’m...so...sorry.” I just grabbed this guy’s crotch. What am I? Nuts? “I just wanted to make sure you were real and not a part of my fantasy. Oh my God, you must think I’m nuts.”


Totally surprised, he didn’t run out like a mad man. He actually approached me and...

Out of the Shade cover


A demon-hunter faces the ultimate threat when her prey awakens a blood-thirsty Egyptian Goddess who shares their hatred for humanity. The hunter becomes the hunted. Can she destroy the one whom she is descended from or slide over to the other side?

Faeries that carry katanas and guns instead of sprinkling magic dust and granting wishes. Dragons that reanimate the dead. Drug-crazed goblins terrorizing neighborhoods. Illegal demons attempting to conjure the alter ego of an Egyptian goddess.

Sounds like something out of a nightmare, right? Wrong. It’s my everyday life.

Welcome to the Shade, where all the creatures of myth hang out and where I, Detective Gabrielle Tate of the Supernatural Task Force, police them. My partner is AWOL and my sexy dragon boss is leaving nothing to chance as we deal with goblins high on Escape and a serial killer—or worse, a nest of rogue vampires—leaving the drained corpses of faeries and cops all over town.

And then there’s the psychotic demons trying to conjure the goddess Hathor’s alter ego, Sekhmet, to destroy humanity. As a faery and direct descendant of Hathor, I’m eager to manifest her power and use it to combat evil. At the same time, I need to learn how to control the accompanying bloodlust. How? By taking lessons from the charismatic leader of the local vampire clan, of course.

If you thought the mean streets of Detroit were tough, you've never seen the Shade.

Bonella Gobbles Up Kat Holmes








BONELLA: Um…excuse me but was there a creative lapse at some point that you stared at your cat and came up with a name like KAT? Like, so original…NOT! What’s up with that?

KAT: Well considering I have TWO cats I think it is creative. Besides, they are nice and cuddly. You should get a cat.

BONELLA: I do and she's about to gobble you up whole. I want to hate you but a few of my creepy friends…

FANGS BUD: Like me me me me…she’s cute, can I have her? Can I taste her? Can I keep her?

BONELLA: opstay with the estionsquay before we get ootedbay, angfay. As I was saying, a few of my creepy friends, like Fangs here told me you’re into Greek Gods. Is that like a real passion or you just kissing as—

LEA: Not warning you again about your language!

BONELLA: There you go assuming the worse of me again. Kissing astral plains…woman has a severe case of jumping the gun. So, Miz Kats, why the interest in dead Gods?

KAT: Who said they’re dead? I wouldn’t want to be you if Hades found out you just called him dead. He rules the dead, and that means bone people too. Do you need the number for a good lawyer who specializes in angry Gods?

As for my love of Greek gods, yep I do love em. Not gonna deny it. I think it has to do with the fact that they aren’t perfect. They have flaws just like everyone else. Even you.

BONELLA: Excuse me but speak for yourself. I. Don't. Have. Flaws. Have you ever been bitten by a vampire? If not, have you fantasized about it?

KAT: Vampires. Now THAT’s a topic I love. No I’ve never been bitten but like most other hot-blooded women, sure I’ve fantasized about it. There is just something sexy about a tortured soul with fangs. And anyone who says otherwise is either lying or long dead themselves.

FANGS BUD: I’m dead, real dead, like nightly stalking vampire dead, so interested in a bit of night trips with me? I can show you a real good bloody time.

BONELLA: ealay is oingay to ootbay your…

LEA: out of here if you guys don’t keep it clean.

FANGS BUD: artypay ooperpay

BONELLA: Tell me about it. So, Holmes, people ever ask you if you’re related to that shmuck Sherlock Holmes? You know his crypt is right by my lane.

KAT: No but my Mom does get that a lot. And I have to agree with you on that part, though not the full on shmuck description. But I’m not a Sherlock Holmes fan myself. I prefer the mystery writings of Agatha Christie.

BONELLA: The chick on the Express Train, yeah, okay. Last question before you get booted…what’s the big deal with lighthouses? Geez, those lights give me a headache, round and round and round and round…

KAT: Don’t like lighthouses huh? I thought you’d love them since they have a rich history of paranormal activity, mysterious disappearances and murder. For instance I just learned about one lighthouse in Long Island Sound called Execution Rocks Lighthouse. It has a very brutal history. During the Revolution the British would chain rebels up to the rocks at low tide. When high tide came in the people drowned. And years later a serial killer would dump the bodies of his victims off its shores.

Now while I think such a macabre tale would interest you, and I credit a show called Ghost Adventures for the info on that lighthouse, I on the other hand just find them mysterious. I think has to do with the isolation of so many of them on rocky little islands coupled with stories of keepers disappearing. It just creates its own sense of mystery, suspense, and yes even romance.

BONELLA: Wish I could say it’s been fun…well, actually, you are into dead guys so you did brighten our monthly guest posting somewhat…

FANGS BUD: So you gonna go out with me for a…bite?

MUMMSY BITTER: FANGS BUD!! Just what do you think you’re doing?

BONELLA: Oh sh*&! Gotta run. Mummsy’s gonna crack someone’s fangs shortly.

A Few Things About Kat Holmes




I love getting to know my readers and it is only fair my readers get to know me. So here are a few tidbits about Kat Holmes outside the writing.:-)




1: My first book with Muse is called The Lighthouse. I wrote this story because I LOVE lighthouses. I even collect little lighthouse statuettes.




2: My hero is my mom, another Muse author named L.J. Holmes. This woman is the most courageous person I know.




3: I have two cats who mean the world to me. I'm including pics. The white & gray cat is my baby. Her name is Pudge, The black cat with pink spots is Spatz. She's a total imp.




4: I ADORE Greek mythology. I have read every myth both popular and obscure that there is. I just can't get enough of them.




5: I still watch my favorite childhood cartoon, Scooby Doo.:-)




6: My favorite musical group is Celtic Woman. One day I am gonna see them perform live I swear it!




7: I stink at math. It's always been and probably always will be my worst subject.




8: If I could go anywhere on the planet I'd want to go to Scotland and Greece. Those are the two places I'd most like to visit.




9: I'm hooked on the Food Network. I love watching the shows on that channel.




10: My favorite movie ever is an oldie my Mom got me hooked on, Arsenic And Old Lace.




That's good enough I think. The Lighthouse will release from Muse It Hot on January 01, 2011. I am so excited. See you all soon.

Meet Colin Dunlow from Shadows Steal the Light

Here in the green room this evening I’m scheduled to meet Colin Dunlow, lead singer of the world’s hottest rock band, Dumbarton. Who better to interview him than the woman who brought his talent to the forefront, his literary agent, so to speak-- me, Christine London. Little did I realize when I first imagined such a man, he actually had already stunned the rock and roll dynasty with his raw talent. I’m expecting him any moment and we’ve only just begun.


The dark shadow of his sinuous frame fills the doorway as he steps into the room, back stage Royal Albert Hall, London.


Wry lift at the corner of his mouth, eyes gazing into mine with a questioning twinkle, the lines at his forehead deepen as he narrows grey blue eyes. Does he really have the ability to melt me with the suggestion of a smile?


Hands ruffling already tussled blonde mane, his biceps flex, charcoal gray tee rising to expose slim abs, a sparse path of hair dipping into trouser line. The arc of his brows frames mysterious eyes holding secrets and promise. Tendons at his wrists divulge tension unseen in his expression. Could he be as nervous as I?


The apples of his cheeks rise, he smiles in genuine warmth, my heart fills in a flush. Suddenly appearing the little boy, he squints in mock self-consciousness and extends a large hand.


“My name’s Colin. Nice to meet ‘cha. Thanks for stoppin’ by tonight.”


I allow my focus to leave his face in quick appraisal of the room I’d entered just moments before. Guitars rest against the wall held by padded stands at a tilt. The only light sifting in shafts of mote-flecked air illuminated by canisters recessed in the ceiling.


Ms. London: My pleasure.


Colin: Cheers, then.


He lifts an arm directing me toward a pair of stools basking in a warm beam of light in front of a mic dangling from above. I drop onto the tallest, across from him.


Ms. London: Magazines and media alike have reported about your love affair with your fans. You take every opportunity to engage them, shaking hands along stage’s edge, signing autographs even after a grueling concert, joking backstage and appearing on talk shows. You’re a man well loved in return.


Colin shifts on his stool fingers laced together between strong thighs.


I continue.


“This mystery woman of yours. It’s been rumored you have more than the casual relationship with a certain California-based Jazz singer.”


His jaw tightens, a muscle at the hinge twitches.


Colin: I met Miss Lindstrom quite by accident. In an accident actually. Ran into her just down the road. She’s here to help raise funds as Dumbarton is, for charity.


Ms. London: And there’s nothing more?


Colin: The lady lives six thousand miles from here and is returnin’ there soon as her series of events wrap here in the UK.


Ms. London: She poses no threat to your number one standing on the charts? She had one hell of a launch in Los Angeles-- and here tonight.


Colin: I wouldn’t know.


The hollow echo of something metallic striking the concrete floor in the hallway announces we are not alone. Through the backlight of the doorway comes the broad figure of an athletic man over six feet in height. Unlike the casual denim of my interviewee, he is dressed in classic woolen trousers, crisp white dress shirt button down at the neck. The sheen of his fine leather wingtips and the perfect crease bisecting his shin belie his business intent.


“Excuse me, but I need to see Mister Dunlow.”


Colin: “I’m in the middle of an interview, Kyle. Can it wait?”


Kyle: bowing in acknowledgment “Sorry Miss, but my client and I must have a word.”


Colin: You’ll excuse me Miss London. My manager can take it from here. I’ve got someone I must catch.


Ms. London: But I thought we were to—


Colin: I apologize, I really do.


Kyle: looks to Colin in evaluation, shoulders stiff in shunted recrimination. Where’s she gone?


Colin: As far away from the two of us as she can, I’m sure. The stern look of reprimand is undeniable, blanching his face except for the rosy fire rising to his cheeks.

Expediency wars with sanity on Kyle’s face.


Kyle: Go then. He snaps, head jerking toward the door.


Colin rises from the stool shooting a glance pregnant with unquenched anger toward his manager. He turns toward me, nodding his apology and walks out the door.


I look at his retreating form for a long moment reluctantly returning my attention to Kyle.

Ms. London: So…I, uh--”


Kyle: No, no, nothing to worry about miss. Colin told me he was expecting you, but that was before we had that rather amazing debut performance of Miss Lindstrom. His dark good looks remind me of a male underwear model I saw last week in GQ magazine.


Ms. London: I heard. She is indeed remarkable. Is she your client as well?


Kyle: She is.


Ms. London: Has Colin gone home for the evening then? I look to the door again as though my concentration would somehow bring the illusive and magnetic Mister Dunlow back into the room.


Kyle: I imagine, yes. He’s had a long night.


Ms. London: Nothing to do with his recent return from rehab.?


Kyle: Once an AA member, always one. Colin’s the strongest man I know. He’ll remain on the straight and narrow.


A question mark of black hair falls into his eyes and he rakes it away with a casual gesture.


I don’t know how much research you’ve done on Colin, but he’s not had the easiest path these last few years since the band has gone global.


Ms. London: More than you know.


Kyle: Then perhaps you are also aware that we grew up almost as brothers.


Ms. London: You’d never guess it looking at you.


Kyle: He’s straighter laced than that rocker exterior would betray. Becoming his manger just seemed natural as he progressed from garage musician to local legend.


Imagining Colin Dunlow as some sort of California beach boy hold up in his parent’s garage with four other spotty teens seems about as incongruous as mid winter sunshine in Peterborough. Both men grew up within a stone’s throw of the quaint English Midland’s town. The middle class bedroom community hardly seems rife with angst and struggle.


Ms London: So what’s your theory?


Kyle: About what?


Ms London: Why your client has gone after a woman he just met.


Kyle: Miss Lindstrom? He chuckles. Not likely.


Ms London: It was written all over him.


Kyle: He’s no allowed. No sooner had the words left his mouth than his face telegraphed regret.

Shoving hands in trouser pocket, he looks to the floor. His sponsor has disallowed it.


Ms London: His AA sponsor?


Kyle: Yes. It’s part of the programme. Got to become strong as an individual before any relationship can be considered. He raises his chocolate brown eyes to engage mine and in an instant I can see into his soul.


Ms London: Perhaps it ought to be you going after Miss Lindstrom.


He looks at me for an uncomfortable moment.


Kyle: She’s my client.


Ms London: Yes.


Shifting weight from one foot to the other Kyle’s demeanor changes from man in control to lad caught sneaking a toad into the house.


Kyle: Perhaps you ought to reschedule this interview for a better time, Miss London. His eyes shift toward the door, then back to mine.


Ms London: Perhaps you should hire a bodyguard to look after your client rather than taking it all on yourself.


Kyle: What makes you think he needs protection?


Ms London: He has become larger than life and with celebrity comes exposure, with exposure—risk.


He lowers his chin, brows squeezing together.


Kyle: Do you know something I do not?


Ms London: Not at all. It’s just that most men of his caliber have more than one threatening nutter following them. Has he never had a problem?


Kyle: None he’s shared.


Ms London: I’ll ring you in the morning, then, to set up a better time for Mister Dunlow.


Kyle: Fine. He begins to turn, but stops to face me.


The ice in his tone throws a wall between us. I hike my bag to my shoulder and stand.

Ms London: Please tell Miss Lindstrom I’d like a few words with her as well. She’d make a great success story.


Kyle: Cheers. A curtain lowers over his features as he extends a hand. Thank you for your interest.


I look into his eyes. Was there a moment of uncertainty behind that cool control or is it the sultry Miss Lindstrom that has set both these men off their game?


Kyle turns and strides out the door.

Shadows Steal The Light by Christine London

Colin Dunlow is caught in a web of alcoholism precipitated by his skyrocketing fame as lead singer of the world’s hottest hard rock group, Dumbarton. When he bumps into legal activist and sultry jazz singer, Jenna Lindstrom, he’s no idea what’s in store. How can he maintain his newfound sobriety whilst navigating a comeback and investigate who might want him dead? All of this and he has an AA sponsor who won’t allow him any serious relationship, not if he wants to live. What’s a rocker to do? Especially when the woman of his dreams hates rock and roll.
